Thermal Insulation in Lebanon

In an effort to understand the correct choice of thermal insulation in construction, tOD investigated the different types of thermal insulation available in the Lebanese market and their corresponding thicknesses related to each zone (coastal, western mid-mountain, inland plateau, and high mountain zones); furthermore, tOD had a look on the Green Guide by the Buidling Research Establishment (BRE) and graphed the ratings of each of the thermal insulations according to their environmental impact.
